  1. The outbreak of hostilities with England in 1294 was the inevitable result of the competitive expansionist monarchies, triggered by a secret Franco-Scottish pact of mutual assistance against Edward I , who was Philip’s brother-in-law, having married Philip’s sister Margaret ; inconclusive campaigns for the control of Gascony to the southwest of France were fought in 1294–98 and 1300–03. Philip gained Guienne but was forced to return it. The search for income to cover military expenditures set its stamp on Philip’s reign and his contemporary reputation. Pursuant to the terms of the Treaty of Paris (1303) , the marriage of Philip’s daughter Isabella to the Prince of Wales , heir of Philip’s enemy, celebrated at Boulogne , 25 January 1308, was meant to seal a peace; instead it would produce an eventual English claimant to the French throne itself, and the Hundred Years’ War .
